North Charleston asking for materials telling city's history

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - North Charleston is asking for the public's help in telling the story of the city.

The North Charleston Archives and History Committee was formed in 2010 and, beginning Monday, is asking the public to provide artifacts, maps, photos, documents, and publications about the city's history.

North Charleston is the third-largest city in the state. It was founded in 1972 and had a population of more than 97,000 in the 2010 U.S. Census.

City officials say that items can be donated. Or, if people prefer, items will be photographed or scanned and returned to the owners.

During the month of March, the Archives and History Committee is also displaying items already in its collection in the lobby of North Charleston City Hall.
